Late Tuesday, Apple released its MacBook EFI Firmware Update 1.4 for its MacBook notebook. The update, a 3.1 megabyte download, eliminates the noise made by the optical disk drive during system startup and wake from sleep on MacBook computers.

The company also released its MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.8 for some MacBook Pro models. The update, a 3.4 megabyte download, also eliminates the noise made by the optical drive during startup and emerging from sleep.

Both updates can be snagged via Mac OS X’s built-in Software Update feature and require Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later to install and run.

  1. still noisy, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo macbook pro did not benifit. It stil seems to start the noisy selftest after the system is stared. It had both the firmware 1.8 and the superdrive update. Other users with the same result?

  2. i have the 2.4 care 2 duo as well and same issue as above…

  3. Me too, with a MB unibody 2008. Silent at wakeup, not a starting up/restarting.

  4. I did the update and my new memory (8gb from Crucial) crashes the computer so i have to go back with my old 4gb memory.
